Who is Rebecca Black? Not too sure, but with over 15 million views for her music video "Friday" she is worth a mention. The video itself is a combination being both horrible and amazing. Actually, more like it's so horrible that it's amazing. The depth of lyrical ingenuity is admirable: "Yesterday was Thursday / Today is Friday / Tomorrow is Saturday, and Sunday comes afterwards." Why doesn't Justin Bieber write songs like this?

Some questions/thoughts while watching:
She can just talk about getting ready, without actually getting ready, and still get ready?
Who gave a 12-year old keys to a convertible?
Pretty sure the only seat available is in the back.
What about the "friend" on your left side, Rebecca?

Fat Usher, why are you following a school bus late at night? News flash: Rebecca isn't on the bus, she ditched it for a ride with her friends.
Did she even go to school that day?
What about you? Watching this video, what are some of your favourite lyrics (or biggest questions) to this...song?
As upbeat as this video was, it's a little depressing knowing that these kids are going to "get down" this weekend and party while I'll most likely be stuck at home studying. FUN FUN FUN FUN. I do give her some credit, though. Rebecca Black did something Sesame Street failed to do: teach me the days of the week. Saturday and Sunday both start with the same letter, it can be confusing which comes first sometimes.
It's going to be weird if from now on people looking forward to the weekend will also be looking forward to mentioning this song. One thing is for certain though: If the Bieber fever doesn't kill you, the Black plague will.
